Webroot APAC managing director, Crispin Kerr, has left the company following an internal restructure.

Kerr has departed after almost four years at the helm, where he was responsible for overseeing the company’s operations, development in the region, marketing and channel relationships.

Webroot vice president of worldwide consumer and SMB sales, David Bennett, said the company's operations in the Asia and Pacific Region had recently undergone an internal restructure, which included the departure of Kerr.

"The decision was a mutual agreement between both parties and Kerr has departed with best wishes from the Webroot executive team," he said.

"The decision to restructure was in order to focus operations and processes across APAC, particularly A/NZ to ensure Webroot continues deliver great products and services to customers."

Kerr told ARN that Bennett's comments regarding his departure being a mutual agreement were correct.

"I was not aligned with the severity of the restructure and as regional leader, preffered my name not to be attached to the changes," he said.

"I wish Webroot nothing but the best of success going forward and am especially keen for Webroot's partners, to continue to enjoy great product and support from the local team."

Webroot would not confirm whether a replacement had been found, however it understood that a search is underway.

Bennett said the restructure did not impact Webroot’s ongoing operating processes.

"It is business-as-usual for customers across the region," he said.

"The mission of our business remains the same and driving further growth and sales in the region remains a core focus. Webroot is 100 per cent committed to its staff, distributors and channel partners and will continue to drive growth in the channel market over the next 12 months.”
